Together, we Feed Ontario

Feed Ontario is the province's largest collective of hunger-relief organizations. Together with food banks, industry partners, and local communities, we are relieving hunger in communities now, while driving change through research and advocacy to ensure a future where everyone is food secure.

Join us in our fight to end poverty in Ontario.

What’s new

FORK IN THE ROAD

Inadequate social assistance supports, a lack of quality jobs, and unaffordable housing are making it impossible for many Ontarians to afford their basic necessities.

To help illustrate the devastating choices that are facing individuals and families in our province, Feed Ontario has created an interactive digital experience that walks users through a month of decisions including navigating where to live and who they may have to live with, what type of transportation they will rely on, choosing which bills they can afford to paid each month, and what, if any, little pleasures may be in the budget.

Can you make it through the month and what will you have to sacrifice to get there?

How We Feed Ontario

Feed Ontario represents a network of more than 1,200 food banks and hunger-relief organizations across Ontario. Through our network, we deliver millions of pounds of food across Ontario, serving more than 800,000 people each year. While we work to strengthen and grow the capacity of the provincial food bank network, to realize our vision of an Ontario where everyone is food secure, Feed Ontario continues to advocate for evidence-based programs and solutions to make ending hunger and poverty a priority in our province.
